If u feel comfortable riding duck stance u should be fine.. this is better for switch.. i'd say just keep tweaking it until u feel most comfortable

It shouldn't affect your riding. However, biding set up is all about feel. So if it doesn't feel right when you're riding, adjust the settings.

when you go on the hill bring a tool(screwdriver) and adjust as you take a couple of runs. If you feel comfortable in your living room strapped in you should be ok on the hill, FYI I ride 12/-12 and im comfy with that but it's all preference.

Do what feels right to you. No one has the perfect setup for everyone, but you have to find the perfect setup for you. I ride 15/-15, my husband rides 15/-7, everyone is different, get a little tool set and just tweek it as you go.
